Don't trust what you see...

The 2 Squares labelled A and B are actually the same colour.

Check it out for youself if you don't believe me. Copy it into Paint /Photoshop and place the squares next to each other.

Weird huh? -- Why should you believe anything you see.

Visual aggregration of Google News

An interesting way to read Google News

"Newsmap is an application that visually reflects the constantly changing landscape of the Google News news aggregator. A treemap visualization algorithm helps display the enormous amount of information gathered by the aggregator. Treemaps are traditionally space-constrained visualizations of information. Newsmap's objective takes that goal a step further and provides a tool to divide information into quickly recognizable bands which, when presented together, reveal underlying patterns in news reporting across cultures and within news segments in constant change around the globe."

BTW -- heres an alternative approach, but i prefer NewsMap.
